Dear Residents and Families,
Highbridge Woodycrest Center considers the health and well-being of our residents and staff a priority. With that in mind, we are sending this letter home for your awareness. Please be advised that individuals at Highbridge Woodycrest Center have been diagnosed with COVID-19. We are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to help ensure that the person diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19 follows instructions for isolation and remains away from others until they can safely return to the regular setting. We will also continue to clean and disinfect all areas of the facility.
Any residents who have been identified as a close contact of the individual diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19 have been notified of their close contact status prior to the distribution of this letter. If you did not receive that notification, your family member is NOT a close contact with the individual diagnosed with COVID-19. Therefore, they are NOT required to quarantine. We continue to monitor all our residents and staff each day for symptoms.
We modified some of our services in order to safely quarantine all the COVID -19 positive residents and their close contacts.
We will continue to provide regular updates, as needed and appropriate, and will provide prompt notification of any COVID-19 or other health-related concerns that require your attention. We encourage you to contact us with questions and concerns. Please call us at 718-414-1750, email us at [email protected], or visit our website highbridgewoodycrestcenter.com for updates.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our residents and staff. COVID-19 vaccination among all eligible residents as well as staff, and their household members is the leading public health strategy to help end the pandemic. Please visit CDC’s COVID-19 page for more information for updates on COVID-19 and vaccination.
